When You Remember Me is a 1990 fact-based television film. It is based on the life of Michael Patrick Smith, a young man who filed a lawsuit in the early '70s that led to improved conditions for nursing home patients nationwide.[1]


Mike Mills is a teen with muscular dystrophy, whose destitute single mother placed him in a state nursing home, where he contends with being a young person in the clinic and with an abusive head nurse, while Wade Blank started ADAPT, a grassroots national disability rights group in Denver in the 1980s.
